Video posted to YouTube shows California police harassing a bow fisherman with a GoPro camera mounted on his head after neighbors hundreds of yards away dialed 911.

Connor J. Shular, a youtuber with a channel about bow fishing, was minding his own business when an officer named Romo approached him and asked him to drop his bow and arrow.

“How’s it going?” Connor asks Romo.

“Good, can you put that down for me please?”

“Oh . . . yeah,” he replies.

“What are you doing out here today?”

“I’m just bowfishing.”

“Is that a thing?”

“Yeah,” Shular laughs.

“I got concerned calls for passersby saying there is a suspicious man with a crossbow shooting at stuff,” officer Romo says as he walks up to a bloody carp flopping on the ground.

“Holy shit, that’s actually a thing,” he says as he notices the fish.

“How do you aim? I mean obviously I know how you aim, but how do you actually see where fish are?”

“Well, I just walk real slow. And if there’s dirt clouds in the water popping up, it’s because they’re in there doing this. And I just wait until I see them coming up, and then I shoot them . . . either that, or they’ll just be hiding under the weeds and just pop out and I’ll take a shot.”

The friendly conversation didn’t last too long before Romo asks Shular for his ID.

Shular gives the officer his identification.

Officer Romo explains that if he doesn’t have any warrant or anything, he’ll be free to go.

“You’re not on parole or anything like that?” he asks Shular.

Three officers can be seen approaching the scene in the background.

“Bowfishing,” officer Romo points to the ground at the fish.

“It’s legit,” he says smiling.

The officers look to the ground.

“Yeah, he was pulling that out as I walked up,” he says pointing at the fish flopping on the ground near the female officer.

“Oh! Something is moving!” she jumps.

The arriving officers also seem interested in how bowfishing actually works and ask for a demonstration.

Connor gives a brief demo and explains legally you can only shoot carp or sucker fish before the officers leave.

“Alright, well, we’ll get out of your hair,” one officer says before leaving.

“I knew sooner or later; I knew the cops would be called on me,” Shular narrates.

“There’s a lot of houses out here and people get a afraid or whatever seeing someone out here with a bow and they don’t know what’s going on.”

“I’m glad my GoPro was recording, and I was reeling up a fish as he came by,” Shular says, thanking the officers for giving him content for his bowfishing channel.

And then he goes fishing again and shoots an even bigger carp, which can be seen in the video of the entire encounter above.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
